I think i have time this weekend :) by the way just wanted to mentione that im only after frienship atm, and im not ready to date. i just wanted to mentione it so that we know we are on the same page

  • Honesty is the best policy. If you just like him as a friend tell him that. If you don't want to go out on a date with him, tell him that too. If you want to hang out for Valentine's Day, but just as friends, tell him that.

    His response to your honesty will tell you a lot about him as a person.

  • I think you should be a little more direct than that and just say something like, "I'm really not feeling any chemistry between us... blah blah."

    If you go with what you have right now, "I'm not ready to date..." the poor guy might think he still has a chance with you leading to getting him fucked over down the line.

  • I tell you what, if this guy happens to appear in your face a lot and you send this message it's gonna be invalid he will try to convince you about him more and more but if it's not ! then it's gonna work.

    • why?

    • Show All
    • i get your point... i changed the rejection-message or what ever i should call it in the updates, what you think about that?

    • Acceptable.

  • Why not keep it simple and easy
    Just let him know that you look forward to him only as a friend and that you're not at all interested in dating

  • Cut out all the none important things he doesn't need to know. Such as your brother shoulder. That's only relative to you.

    " hey, sorry I took a while to reply. I was a little busy. We can still go but I just feel you should know that I'm not looking for a relationship right now. I hope you understand"

  • I don't think you should lie, except if your brothers shoulder is really dislocated. If that's not the case, just remove the 'brother's shoulder' part, the rest looks good.
